In the last two days, I have had the chance to chat with most of you about the businesses you are doing.
I must say I am both encouraged and inspired by your hard work.
Some run schools, other do construction material manufacture, others are trading, other are into agriculture…it’s a wide variety of business endeavors.
Some of you shard your challenges

Most importantly, in the word of
Marketing is too important to be left to the marketing department
